Visit to Cambridge

Just got back from our visit to Cambridge University Open Day.  Well, it was actually two days - we stayed overnight because of the distant.  Even so we had to get up at 4 in the morning on Thursday to make sure we were there by 10! 

Eve stayed in one of the colleges, whilst we stayed in a B&B.  Here's the view from the window of her room. 

All very quaint and atmospheric - just what she wanted. 

We spent the two days wandering around as many colleges as we could - but after a while they all start to merge into each other and it becomes hard to remember which was which. 

Cambridge is a lovely city - a good size - not too big and not too small.  Lots of beautiful buildings and plenty of open green spaces.  We all loved it there.  The weather was erratic - one minute it was umbrellas and jackets but then the sun would come out and the layers came off - just as the next shower arrived. 

Here's some photos I took - yes I remembered to take the camera out of my bag this time!

Eve was impressed with the sound of the history course and was fell in love with a number of colleges.  However, only 1 in 5 people who apply get a place, it's very competitive - so we'll just have to wait and see.  In the meantime, we will probably go and look round a few more universities in the school holidays and maybe attend some more open days in September or October.  Now all I've got to do is to find somewhere to stash all the brochure, pamphlets and leaflets we've accumulated in the last few weeks!!
